Open to All ~ Invite Your Friends!

These are extraordinary times, and Durga is a Goddess of incredible strength and justice whose power offers compassion, calm, and order to situations of potential chaos, destruction, or conflict. Carlos de León invites students and friends of Ontogony to gather online for the transmissions and practices of Durga.

The meditations based on Durga, the Great Mother, help us to remove limitations—the emotional and mental obscurations that, for example, keep us, personally and collectively, from shining with the divine light we all carry within our hearts. The series has nine events, culminating in a gathering celebrating the eleventh anniversary of the Ontogony teachings in this format. 

About Durga, the Practice:

Durga is the name taken by a courageous goddess whose first appearance in a 1500-year-old myth was as a beautiful warrior seated upon a lion. It was a troubled time. A tyrannical demon, through dreadful austerities, had acquired invincible strength. Neither Vishnu nor Shiva could prevail against this buffalo-headed monster known and feared as Mahishasur (or Durgama). The beautiful goddess took him on and, through the collective energies of Shakti, vanquished him. Victorious from her epic battle, proof that the divine light of truth and wisdom prevails over disorder and pain, she became Durga: invincible, unconquerable, and unassailable. 

The nine forms of Maa Durga are Shailaputri, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skandamata, Katyayani, Kalaratri, Mahagauri, and Siddhidatri. ‘Durga’, in Sanskrit, means “she who is incomprehensible or difficult to reach.” Goddess Durga is a form of Shakti, worshipped for her graciousness and terrifyingness as the mother of the universe. She represents the infinite power of the Universe and is a symbol of female dynamism. The manifestation of Goddess Durga is said to emerge from Her formless essence, and the two are inseparable.

Today, in this assortment of ecological, political, social, and religious crises, we find that a 1500-year-old myth (the Devi Mahatmya) and a millennia-old ritual worship of the Great Goddess (Durga) provide philosophical and spiritual insight. We can be aided and led in the process of profound transformation, whose need we now face globally and personally.

Carlos shares the following practices in the nine primary forms of Durga transmission:

Maa Durga, the primary manifestation, confronts the demons of arrogance, pride, hypocrisy, greed, rage, discrimination, and injustice, opening the pathway for our liberation and enhancing the experience of wisdom and compassion.

  • Goddess Shailputri encourages faith in yourself and healthy lifestyles.
  • Goddess Brahmacharini teaches us all to remain focused in life through meditation.
  • Goddess Chandraghanta inspires positive living and being prepared for life's challenges.
  • Goddess Kushmanda cultivates an honest effort to live our meaningful dreams and the ability to manifest them.
  • Goddess Skandamata expands the soft values of life, like being polite and understanding towards each other.
  • Goddess Katyayani develops the ability to take initiative and fight against injustice.
  • Goddess Kaalratri destroys all negative emotions like greed, cheating, hatred, and jealousy.
  • Goddess Mahagauri teaches us to stay cheerful and live with an open heart and confidence.
  • Goddess Siddhidatri increases knowledge and feelings of security, which are things one should learn from this goddess.

Join us for the entire Live Streaming and Online series spanning from October 27, 2023, to September 27, 2024. Enjoy the transformational fruits of Durga's practice. By practicing with a unified vision, we discover new avenues for spiritual growth and expand our consciousness, compassion and gratitude.

We eagerly anticipate your participation in all the events, including our eleventh-anniversary celebration. We are grateful for the wisdom imparted by the Teachings of Ontogony. Please register in advance to gain access to the Online Classroom and ensure receipt of event reminders before each session, enabling your participation in our group meditation!

Residential Retreat with Carlos de León
May 26 thru 31, 2024 

Enrolment is open to EVERYONE!

Important Update: Before registering for your lodging, please contact the Ontogony Team at info@ontogony.com to confirm availability, as space is limited. Reservations are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis.

Host Location: Loon Lake Lodge & Retreat Centre, Maple Ridge, BC. This lovely natural setting on the shore of a pristine lake is part of the University of British Columbia's Malcolm Knapp Research Forest. Located 1.5 hours from downtown Vancouver, it is like an enchanted forest full of walking trails and wildlife.

Do you long for a profound experience of meditation to nurture your body, heart and soul? The Dakinis Intensive, a 6-Day Residential Meditation Retreat, beautifully located, offers both beginners and seasoned practitioners an opportunity to really deepen. It is a week-long intensive for new and current students that provides a meditation environment in which to cultivate ''The Natural Mind or State''. Meditation, long considered the "royal road" to enlightenment, has exceptional value and relevance for the times we now live in.

This retreat introduces the elements essential to the experience of a meditation practice for new students. For more seasoned practitioners, it offers a connection with energetic beings in feminine form who evoke the movement of energy in space. In this context, the sky or space indicates Sūnyatā, the insubstantiality of all phenomena, which is, at the same time, the pure potentiality of all possible manifestations.

Dakini in Sanskrit or Khandro in Tibetan means "sky dweller" or " sky dancer" and is the most sacred aspect of Tibetan Buddhism's feminine principle, embodying humanity and divinity in feminine form. Dakini practices are considered some of the most profound, graceful, swift, and blissful that we can learn. Dakini's practices are valuable, practical, and relevant in a world like this!

In Dzogchen, the Dakini could be considered the final of three stages on the Vajrayana Path: 

  • The first would be the Guru, corresponding to the initial realization of the true condition of reality introduced by the Guru in empowerment.
  • The second is Yidam, corresponding to devata meditation, the method used to develop the state discovered in the initial realization.
  • The third stage is the Dākinī, insofar as the Dākinī is the source of the activities based on guru realization and devata meditation.

As the Base, the Dākinīs are the energies of life; as the Path, they are the activities of advanced practitioners; and as the Fruit, they are the actionless activities of the realized Masters.

There is no prerequisite for attending this retreat other than your desire. However, we strongly recommend you review the "Mini-Series: Meditation Practice" as preparation. It will deepen your state of awareness and enrich your in-person time with Carlos de León.

Program Objectives of the Dakini’s Meditation Retreat:

  • To experience the profound benefits of sitting in daily meditation practice, inviting a messenger of emptiness, who may also appear in dreams to guide the meditator;
  • To advance in your level of meditation practice, and invite the dakini as a force of truth: wherever we cling, she cuts; whatever we think we can hide, she reveals;
  • To understand the essential practices—the fierce, powerful feminine energy which offers potential for enlightenment;
  • To gain a fuller appreciation of both the ''gradual'' and the ''instantaneous'' approach to meditative technologies; and
  • To clarify the best approach for your personal practice, with the goal of liberation.

Fundamental Practices and Theoretical Foundations of Vajrayogini, Tara, Ekajati

  • Invocation of Dakinis and Ekajati: Guru Yoga and Self-Empowerment
  • Thrul Khor: Tibetan Yoga
  • Dakini Yogas: Illusion Body & Clear Light Yoga
  • Tara Practices: Longevity & Wealth
  • Heart Essence of the Dakinis: Six Sutras (Bonpo Text)
  • Essential Guru Yoga Practice: Vajrayogini

Vajrayoginī

Vajrayoginī is a Tantric Buddhist Buddha and a Dākiṇī. The essence of Vajrayoginī is "great passion", a transcendent passion free from egoism and delusion: it works intensely for the welfare of others and the destruction of ego-clinging.

Vajrayoginī practice belongs to the Mother Tantra class of Anuttarayoga Tantras, along with other tantras like Cakrasaṃvara and Hevajra Tantras. Vajrayogini is the female Buddha who takes forms like a dancing Dakini, a fierce, joyful, wrathful warrior, or a compassionate mother, single or embraced by her consort. She symbolizes the vibrant intrinsic power of altruistic love and radical clarity.

For Vajrayogini, this focuses on the transformation from ordinary grasping and clinging to altruistic, supreme love; it focuses on the transformation of our identity and the re-inhabitation of the experience embodied in the energy of the yidam, the deity of meditation. It is a practice that frees the mind from the confines of its habitual reference points. This practice is a profound method of meditation based on the Vajrayana view of the mind so that our identity is opened and aesthetically charged with the energies of the five wisdoms.

Tara

Tara is undoubtedly the most popular female Buddha. Her name means "star" in Sanskrit, and she is believed to possess the ability to guide followers on their spiritual path like a star. Her name in Tibetan, Jetsun Dölma, means " she that saves."

In some Buddhist legends, it is said that she was born from one of Avalokiteshvara's tears, shed in a moment of deep compassion. Other Buddhist legends, however, tell of a devout Buddhist princess who lived millions of years ago and became a bodhisattva, vowing to keep being reborn in female form (rather than in male form, which was somebody considered more advanced on the ‘Path to Enlightenment’) to continue helping others.

She remained in a state of meditation for 10 million years, thus releasing tens of millions of beings from suffering. Since then, she has manifested her enlightenment as the goddess Tara.

Ekajati

Ekajati is the supreme protectress of Ati Great Perfection Teaching, Dzogchen. She is a guardian of the Tantric Path and protects it from those who are unworthy. She removes obstacles to the lives and accomplishments of those who practice the Secret Mantra Path. 

Ekajati is the protector of secret mantras, and "as the mother of the mothers of all the Buddhas," she represents absolute, ultimate unity. Her ascribed powers also remove the fear of enemies, spread joy, and remove personal hindrances on the Path to enlightenment. Ekajati  is considered the Queen of the Dakinis.


Practicing with Dakini "sky dancers" is the most sacred aspect of the feminine principle in Tibetan Buddhism. Both spiritual and erotic, ecstatic and wise, playful and profound, fierce and peaceful—beyond the conceptual mind's grasp. There is a place for our feminine being to be present in all its guises.

Online with Carlos de León

Presented in Spanish with Simultaneous English Translation
Access On-Demand for 4 Months!

SPECIAL OFFER: Sign up for the Workshop Series: Trika Shaivism, The Heart of Recognition, and the Mini-Workshop is a FREE GIFT!

This three-hour online mini-workshop introduces the profound teachings of Kashmir Shaivism from the Pratyabhijna School through the text “The Heart of Recognition from the Siddha Kshemeraja." Learn more about a meditative practice that penetrates the state of “instantaneous recognition."

The teachings of the Pratyabhijna school relate to those of Dzochen and Essential Mahamudra. The term “pratyabhijna” suggests the spontaneous recognition and realization of the True Self. Without moving anywhere or doing anything, the goal is to know “Who We Truly Are" here and now, whether in our daily experience or the rapture of the Supreme Being!

This 3-hour online workshop offers an overview of the essence of a more extended series focusing on a text, "The Heart of Recognition,” composed in the 10th century by Kshemaraja, a philosopher disciple of the sage Abhinavagupta. The entire work consists of only 20 sutras, which will be explored in the program as a whole series. “Sutra” in Indian literary traditions refers to a verse or a collection of aphorisms in the form of a manual or, more broadly, a condensed text.

Coming from the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, the work associates supreme consciousness with Lord Shiva. It gives us, in a beautiful condensation, the “secret” or heart (hridaya) of an enormous volume of teachings: the process and the various stages by which Divine Consciousness becomes the world of forms and ultimately delights in the recognition (pratyabhijna) of itself, as revealed in the dynamics of our particular consciousness.

If you find resonance in this introductory workshop, we invite you to join the online live-streamed series of ten sessions that will be hosted on Tuesdays, April 4 through June 13, 2023. Click Here to view the full program details.

It will include experiential practices to help ignite and/or strengthen your connection to the Heart of Recognition. Whether you are new to the Ontogony Teachings or a seasoned practitioner of one of the paths, this series is intended to advance your journey and create an adequate environment for conscious living with grace.

Program Highlights

  • Understand the value of a path centred on Shiva (the masculine principle), Shakti (the feminine principle), and Anu (the individual soul);
  • Experience the connections with the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, which associates supreme Consciousness with Lord Shiva;
  • Gain a fuller experience of the state:  “spontaneously to, once again, recognize and realize your Self”;
  • Discover new levels of understanding and be prepared to participate in studying the 20 Sutras or verses of this text, inviting “instant recognition” of what we are from different perspectives.

As you participate in this mini-workshop, may your understanding blossom into pure knowledge and bring you recognition of your True Nature!

Online with Carlos de León
Workshop Series of 10 Sessions

Presented in Spanish with Simultaneous English Translation
Access On-Demand for 1 Year!

Sign up for this program and the Mini-Workshop: Introduction to Trika Shaivism is a GIFT for FREE!

Carlos de León shares the profound teachings of Kashmir Shaivism from the Pratyabhijna School through the text “The Heart of Recognition from the Siddha Kshemeraja." Through Trika Shaivism, this workshop series will provide experiential learning to penetrate the state of recognition.

Kashmir Shaivism, or Trika Shaivism, is a nondualist Hindu tradition of Shaiva-Shakta Tantra that originated in Kashmir sometime after 850 CE. Since this tradition originated in Kashmir, it is often called "Kashmiri Shaivism," although it is believed to have existed well before this time.

The word Trika represents the three primary energies of creation: para (supreme), apara (lowest), and parapara (a combination of the lowest and the highest). In the thought of the Trika, it is admitted that this whole universe and every action in it, whether spiritual, physical, or worldly, exist in these three energies.

Trika (“threefold” or “triad”) refers to the triple consideration of the Divine: Shiva (the masculine principle), Shakti (the feminine principle), and Anu (the individual soul), as well as to the possession of three sets of scriptures, and to several other triads on which this system is based.

The Trika System comprises four sub-systems or schools: the Pratyabhijna system, the Kula system, the Krama system, and the Spanda system. The four systems that comprise the Trika system all accept and are based on the same scriptures (agamas).

Pratyabhijna System

Pratyabhijna means “to spontaneously recognize and realize your true self,” a term that refers to the direct recognition of the Divine Essence. There are no upayas (means) in the Pratyabhijna system.

You must recognize who you are, whether in the rapture of the Supreme Being or the daily experience; you recognize your own nature right then and there without moving anywhere or doing anything. The Pratyabhijna school is close to the teachings of Dzogchen and Essential Mahamudra.

Introduction to the Pratyabhijna school is through the text “The Heart of Recognition, from the Siddha Kshemeraja." In this course, we study the text's 20 sutras, or verses, inviting us to have this “instant recognition of who we are" from different perspectives.

We enrich the experience by presenting, with each sutra, one of the 112 meditation methods of the Vijnana Bhairava, another important Trika text that teaches about our nature and meditation practice. From the 4th class on, we have, along with explanations, 2 or 3 meditations to help penetrate the experience of the state of consciousness.

This series invites you to experience “The Heart of Recognition.” This text comes to us from the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, which associates supreme consciousness with Lord Shiva. Composed in the 10th century by Kshemaraja—a philosopher and disciple of the sage Abhinavagupta—the entire work consists of only 20 sutras.

It gives us the secret or “heart” (hridaya) of an otherwise large volume of teachings regarding the process, by stages, through which divine consciousness becomes the world of various forms and then delights in its recognition (pratyabhijna) of itself, as revealed in the dynamics of our own particular consciousness.

Program Benefits:

  • Understand the value of a path centred on Shiva (the masculine principle), Shakti (the feminine principle), and Anu (the individual soul);
  • Experience the connections with the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, associating supreme Consciousness with Lord Shiva;
  • Gain a fuller experience of the states that "spontaneously once again recognize and realize your Self”;
  • Discover levels of understanding and participate in studying the 20 sutras or verses of this text, which invites us to have this “instant recognition of our true self" from different perspectives.

Carlos de León invites students and friends of Ontogony to gather online for the transmissions and practices of the Wind Horse Tara Series. The following three free events offer the practice of "the enlightened activity” of Tara, the female Buddha of compassion, in her five main manifestations, for the benefit of the practitioner and to serve others. 

The first two meditations are based on “The Wind Horse Tara Practice” by Trulshik Adeu Rinpoche, a Drukpa Kargyud Master, and represent the external and internal levels of the practice. Carlos chose this series of meditations so that we, as a group, might contribute some light and healing for everyone. September's third and final meditation takes us to a secret level: a practice based on Tara’s grace.

You are welcome to access for all three events, culminating in a gathering for our holiday celebration, The Grace of Tara. We are grateful for what we have received through the Teachings of Ontogony; let’s extend the gift this year by building even more bridges of a beautiful friendship and a worldwide community.

About the Practice:

Tara, the female Buddha beloved by Tibetan Buddhists, represents wisdom and motherly compassion and offers help for all suffering, whether of the body or the spirit. Her practices are associated with wisdom, compassion, protection, vital energy, power, and goodness, removing dharmic obstacles and helping practitioners engender good luck and rapid spiritual awakening.

The Tara Practices are of different levels and five manifestations, providing special support as we face the uncertainties ahead on this planet. Arya Tara—the Noble Tara—is the Buddha who emanates from the tears of the compassionate Avalokiteshvara, promising always to be born in a pure female form, and to help living beings reach enlightenment.

Carlos shares the following practices in the five primary forms of Tara transmission:

  • Green Tara, the primary manifestation, dissolves all fear and opens the pathway for our liberation, enhancing the experience of wisdom and compassion.
  • White Tara is associated with the healing, protection, and harmonization of vital energy, and its practice helps practitioners live long lives.
  • Yellow or Golden Tara, who, along with vital energy and strength, can increase our material and spiritual resources.
  • Red Tara attracts goodness to us, teaching discriminatory consciousness and how to convert pure desire into compassion and love.
  • Blue Tara (Ekajati) is a wrathful feminine energy whose invocation destroys all dharmic obstacles in the way of our good luck or rapid spiritual awakening.

Carlos de León invites students and friends of Ontogony to gather online for the continuation of the transmissions and practices of White Tara, the Mother Who Heals. The next four free events offer the practices of "Self Healing, Long Life, Purifying Karma, and the Earth,” with an emphasis on completing the full series of White Tara practices for the benefit of the practitioner and to serve others.

Carlos chose this series of meditations as a way we, as a group, could contribute a little light and healing to everyone. It feels important at this time to add our intention and effort toward harmony and balance personally, if not globally, for the coming year!

We invite you to join us to come together in gratitude for what we have received through the Teachings of Ontogony, and extend that gift by building more beautiful bridges of friendship and community around the world in 2023!

About the Practice:

White Tara, the female Buddha beloved by Tibetan Buddhists, represents the qualities of wisdom and motherly compassion and offers to heal beings who are injured or suffering, whether physically or psychically. Her practices are particularly associated with the healing, protection, harmonization of our vital energy, and helping practitioners to live long, healthy lives.

The White Tara Practices provide special support in facing the sorts of uncertainties that lie ahead on this planet. Arya Tara—the Noble Tara—is a Buddha who, in earlier times, promised to always be born in the pure form of a female body in order to help living beings reach enlightenment. She emanated from the tears of the compassionate Avalokiteshvara. The peaceful White Tara is said to witness the suffering of beings through her seven eyes, and she soothes their fear, calms their anguish, heals their suffering, restores their health—both individual and communal—and extends their lives.

In these transmissions, Carlos shares the following practices:

White Tara Self-Healing Practice 

Long Life Longevity Practice 

Purifying Karma Practice

Purifying the Earth Practice

Join us for the online series to receive the fruits of the practice of White Tara. Let's practice together to find new ways to grow spiritually and expand our levels of compassion, gratitude, and presence. After each session, the presentations are uploaded to the Ontogony Online Classroom 24 hours after the event for you to view at your leisure. 

Register in advance to ensure we can accommodate everyone who is called to participate in our group meditation!

Let’s celebrate a path of teachings that bring new levels of peace, compassion, and presence. During this new year, let’s honour our individual and collective journeys, our growth over the past year, and our plans for 2023 by sharing our intentions to contribute to a peaceful and joyous new world!

Access On-Demand for 1 Year!

Join Carlos de León for a profound meditation practice series of ten sessions drawn from 3 Supreme Traditions (Dzogchen, Trika Shaivism, and Mahamudra) and focussed on a universal model of ascension: the number "9”. Meditation, considered the ‘Royal Path’ to enlightenment, has particular relevance for the times we are now living.

For new students, the program introduces the essential elements and experience of a profound meditation practice. For more seasoned practitioners, it hopes to clarify the states of consciousness with a goal of Liberation.

This series of teachings combine 3 Supreme Meditation Traditions of the highest level:

  • Dzogchen ("Great Perfection" or "Great Completion", also known as Atiyoga - "utmost yoga"), is a direct realization tradition from Tibet. Aimed at discovering or ‘knowing' the ultimate ground of existence, Dzogchen draws on the Bön tradition of Tibet, and the teachings of Garab Dorje´s lineage, and other Mahasiddhas.
  • Trika Shaivism is one of the ancient Tantric traditions of India. Its origins lie in a confluence that includes the Kaula, Trika, and Krama streams of Tantra that flourished in Kashmir and the Swat Valley from the early Christian Era until the 12th century. This teaching will include some elements of the Pratabhijla school of Kashmir Shaivism.
  • Mahamudra is the main teachings of the so-called “New Schools of Vajrayana”; defined by Gampopa as "the realization of the natural state as awareness-emptiness, absolutely clear and transparent, without root." Gampopa also states that Mahamudra is "the paramita of wisdom, beyond thought and expression.” It allows, even encourages, effortless and instantaneous realization.
 

Goals of the Program:

  • To clarify, receive guidance and advance in your level of practice, whether beginner or advanced;
  • To understand the essential practices, the goal, and the importance of “right view”;
  • To gain a fuller appreciation of both the ‘gradual’ approach and the 'Instantaneous' approaches to meditative technologies;
  • To experience the levels of a profound meditation practice within our online group, and have a clearer picture of the best approach to use in your personal practice.

Program Components

  • Part 1: Essential Powers for the Practice of Meditation
First Power: Right View
Second Power: Love and Compassion
Third Power: Awaken Effort
Fourth Power: Joyful Effort
Fifth Power: Grace

  • Part 2: The 9 Levels of Shaktipat, according to Abhinavagupta
Shaktipat is considered an act of Grace (Anugraha) on the part of the Guru where an element of Divine consciousness is held to enter the Self of the disciple. Shaktipat can be transmitted in person, or at a distance through an object such as a flower or fruit, and constitutes an initiation into the school or the spiritual family (kula) of the Guru.

  • Part 3: The 9 Levels of a Practitioner
The teachings of the 9 Drops of Clarity present the practice of meditation through 9 different levels of experience; and, considering that each one of us has a different background, the possibility of a completely unique experience.

Each level of capacity could, by itself, take us to the final goal; yet the levels can also represent a gradual map of awakening. Carlos de León will share a taste of the High, Middle, and Lower Capacities and the three sublevels within each level through meditation sessions hosted during each class.

High Capacity: SHAMBHAVOKAYA or ICCHA YOGA

Middle Capacity: SHAKTOPAYA or JNANA YOGA

Lower Capacity: ANAVOPAYA or KRIYA YOGA

Teachings are further complemented by experiential online group practices to help ignite the beginning and/or strengthen your connection to the 9 Drops of Clarity direct realization meditation practices. Whether you are new to the 3 supreme traditions (Dzogchen, Trika Shaivism, and Mahamudra), or you are an advanced practitioner of one of the paths, this series is designed to illuminate and further the course of your journey.

This mini-series of four classes offers guidance and direction for our relationship with Life and Death; a path to reframe our reality and live in acceptance and conscious awareness of who we are. We will discuss our reluctance to accept death and how that affects our ability to live life with fullness. Join Carlos de León to explore psychological and spiritual perspectives on the wonder of Life and the inescapability of Death.

Inasmuch as everything born dies, there are taboos, fears, and misunderstandings in the West, interestingly resolved by familiarity with Eastern philosophy. The process of death and rebirth is fully and stunningly described by Tibetan Buddhism. There is a paradox that we can't resolve if we don't embrace life and death as one experience; their seeming separation hides a meaning that makes spiritual realization next to impossible.

One obstacle is the view that life is the unique property of the body and, as such, life ends with the body’s death. Death becomes a door that closes forever, independent of one's belief in a heaven or hell, where there is no second chance.

As a study, the process and topic of Death can constitute a spiritual path, a way to approach the levels of consciousness that, ordinarily, we do not contact. It also offers a way to reaffirm the meaning of one's own personal quest. We will discuss our reluctance to accept death and how that affects our ability to live with fullness.

Carlos’ Words...

I am convinced that we need to reframe our reality and live in acceptance and conscious awareness of who we are, and that doesn't come by itself. We need to have the right understanding, the right intention, and the right effort to do it.

To help in the process, I share different spiritual practices that we can use to reach totality and a better chance for liberation… tools with which we can also help others.

"As we live, we will die, and as we die, we will fulfill our life."

~ Carlos de León

Program Highlights:

     
  • Clarify resistance to the uncontrollable, and discover how negation is a defense and collective poison;

     
  • Finding the “Here and Now”; given to us by the experience of Love, Meditation, and Death;

     
  • Gain a fuller appreciation of the "Love we Live"; the loss of "Natural Love", and how we can heal our orality and selfishness with the practices of Tonglen; the Prayer of Saint Francis; and embracing "Love is to Love Others";

     
  • Through meditating, we wake up with an opportunity to apply a conscious effort to love through the practices of returning to our "True Nature", purifying "Karma", and purifying our "Spiritual Poisons";

     
  • In dying, we are reborn; the gift of death. Heal fear with the practices of Tara and White Mahakala, the healer of the Bardo.


Practices for Preparation of Death, for yourself and to Serve Others:

     
  • Cultivating a contemplative state through Dzogchen Meditations (”Great Perfection" or "Great Completion"), a tradition of teachings in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism aimed at discovering and continuing in the ultimate ground of existence;

     
  • Meditating on the Six Bardos; the Tibetan word bardo (བར་དོ་ Wylie: bar do) means “intermediate state"—also translated as "transitional state" or "liminal state";

     
  • Providing assistance to others in the process of death, helping others to depart and transition, and having the possibility of liberating at the moment of death.

The teachings are complemented by experiential online practices to help ignite preparedness and/or strengthen our connection to Death. Whether you are new to the Ontogony Teachings, or you are an advanced practitioner of one of the paths, this series is designed to illuminate and further the course of your journey, living your life to its fullest and creating an adequate environment for a conscious death and a transition with Grace.

Carlos de León invites the students and friends of Ontogony to enjoy our free online session hosted on September 17th, 2022 of the transmission and practice of the 21 Taras. As we acknowledge the blessings and celebrate the journey of the first eight years, Carlos gives the transmission in line with his vision for a practice that transforms our distorted view of ourselves and helps us recognize the innate radiance and compassion of our true nature.


We take this opportunity to express how deeply grateful we are for your presence today and during the past 8 years of growing and learning together.

As we continue to thrive and strive each day, let us share the best of ourselves, our gratitude for all we appreciate, and the beautiful bridges of friendship and community.

About the Practice:

Carlos feels this Tara Practice provides special support in facing the uncertainties that lie ahead for this planet. Arya Tara— Noble Tara— is a Buddha who, in earlier times, promised always to be born in the pure form of a female body in order to help living beings reach enlightenment.

There are many outer and inner obstacles that practitioners encounter on the path to liberation, and there are 21 manifestations of Arya Tara. These practices help practitioners navigate their own obstacles while benefitting others and the planet.

Let us practice together with a unified vision where we find new ways to grow spiritually, to celebrate the magic with greater awareness, and to bring full presence to all that we do and share with others.

Prosperity & Compassionate Gratitude is 
a mini-series of four classes where Carlos de León explores how the capacity to give from the heart opens channels to receive from an eternal flow. Learn spiritual practices to purify personal-psychological blockages in a series of four online classes accessible at your leisure.



This mini-series offers guidance on the flow of manifestation and access to the wisdom expressed in Proverbs 11:25 The generous souls will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered.

The knowingness we are Prosperous at every level and the willingness to give generously and compassionately can be a spiritual practice, a state of mind, a way of life. It seems also to be a consequence of heartful presence, sincere appreciation of all we have, and the privilege of sharing with others according to our means. 

This course offers a fuller understanding and practices to help us fulfill this intention.

Practices & Techniques

  • Learn the Chenrezig Purification Practice. Chenrezig is a tenth bhumi bodhisattva whose realization is so luminous and complete that he is endowed with all of the qualities of a Buddha and could be considered fully enlightened.

  • Study White Dzambhala: An emanation of Chenrezig, whose essence is generosity and whose influence is expansive. Through the power of compassionate intention, visualization, and mantra recitation these practices ripen and enhance our karma for an abundance of resources.

Benefits

  • Purify a right vision and motivation for Prosperity in your life;

  • Transform prosperity into abundance generated out of Compassion and Gratitude;

  • Clarify your interpretation of reality regarding material wealth;

  • Understand the Karmic conditions which require purification; and

  • Apply practices to purify, cultivate and unify with the flow that generates and dissolves in this Pure Reality.

Join us for the mini-series to grow in the vision of living with the spirit of true prosperity, sharing this with all those we meet, and inspiring a flavour of compassion and generosity in all that we do.

The Mini-Workshop: Death & Transcendence offers guidance and direction in reviewing our relationship with Life and Death. Join Carlos de León for an exploration of psychological and spiritual perspectives on the wonder of Life and the inescapability of Death. 


Death, we can´t live without it! And whether we acknowledge or ignore it, every single day, it draws closer. Could we face it in a healthier way? Be more ready for it... whenever? How?

What Carlos proposes is an important investigation around personal experience and our relationship with Death…and Life.

As always in Ontogony, the approach uses several models and traditions, offering an ample spectrum for discovery. Cultures vary in their treatment of Death. In Mexico, El Día de los Muertos each November, corresponding roughly to All Souls Day, brings a very noisy and colourful celebration: music, parades, skulls, and little coffins made of candy. (Almost the opposite of Serious and Solemn!)

Highlights or Objectives of the Mini-Workshop:

  • Clarify Death, and advance in your level of preparation. Reflect on the significance, purpose, and coherence of your life;

  • Understand the importance of “right vision and motivation”; how we can be trapped by a limited vision - throughout our lives up to, and even in, the very moment of our death;

  • Gain a fuller appreciation of Life's uncertainty…and Death's certainty!

  • Explore how we move into ambivalence and denial as a way of coping with the inevitable;

  • Find new levels of understanding; participate in exercises designed to explore the following:

  • A conundrum to be resolved;

  • There has to be something beyond;

  • The way versus the Way;

  • The Practice;

  • Dying and Freedom.

Teachings are complemented by experiential online practices to help ignite preparedness and/or strengthen our connection to Death. Whether you are new to the Ontogony Teachings, or you are an advanced practitioner of one of the paths, this series is designed to illuminate and further the course of your journey, living your life to its fullest and creating an adequate environment for a conscious death and a transition with Grace.

“It has been a wonderful experience…the warmth and joy of sharing was a blessing of a strong and confronting fight with ‘myself”. What a blessing to have Carlos as our Teacher guiding us on this path…”

“Personal transformations, expansion, and growth are seamlessly integrated into a loving and safe environment. What initially felt like a leap of faith, in fact, strengthened my faith in a graceful way. Expectations are shed and the path illuminated. My ability to see love is unbound. I am forever grateful…

"This evolutionary process has changed my life as I removed the veils that covered my vision of myself. I got the courage to make the changes in my life that I needed to, and now I am filled with happiness and enthusiasm…”

In the Awakening series, classes offered online, Carlos de León shares the vision of Ontogony and a map for spiritual growth and its most relevant elements. The goal or intention is empowerment. Whether these are your first steps on the path, or you are an advanced practitioner now seeking a finer compass, this series will help set, maintain and correct the course of your spiritual journey and your personal evolution.

This online series of classes offers a map for those setting out on a spiritual journey; and for advanced practitioners, it serves as a compass to help with your course correct and go the distance. In Ontogony’s view, these are the true fundamentals of spiritual growth.

Program Content & Objectives:

  • Connection to the Divine: From whence does devotion spring? How may one cultivate this connection and grow in personal Grace? Learn to meditate and to pray in ways that bear fruit; techniques to bring light down into the world, and allow a merger with the Divine presence.
  • The True Self: What is the experience of one’s true being? Learn to distinguish the state of Marigpa, and gradually integrate Rigpa into our everyday experiences.
  • The Karmic Condition: How does one manage the obstacles of the everyday life of the path as a practitioner? Learn the parameters of true integration and empower yourself to recognize the role of the shadow in your path.
  • The Physical Body and Subtle Anatomy: How are we designed for the experience of the Divine? Understand the evolution of this connection, and what happens with your body as we grow spiritually.
  • Approach to Death: How to prepare oneself for a conscious death? Become familiar with the levels of souls, the planes of existence, the process of surrender and incarnation. Death is our final opportunity for liberation, the vessel we board when our ship has been stretched beyond its limit!
  • The Reality of Reincarnation: What is the relationship between the unconscious and one’s karma? See how true love and wisdom are not lost in death, but rather constitute our vehicle for transforming our essence life afterlife.

Access On-Demand for 4 Months!

This one-day online workshop with Carlos de León offers the practical basics, the theory, and the vision to move one toward personal growth and spiritual liberation.

Walking the Path of Liberation offers the practical basics, the theory, and the vision of the Ontogony School of Evolution. Serving as both an introduction for the new seeker and a review for the seasoned practitioner, the workshop explores the ways we can move toward personal growth and spiritual liberation.

Program Content & Objectives:

  • Expanding in Pure Awareness without the distortions of the Conditioned Mind: This means access to the True Self, to the heart or inner “I,” that we spend so much of this life disconnected from and, as a consequence, cut off from our source of Love.
  • Honouring our Human Incarnation: The body is a splendid vehicle in which the soul can evolve, grow, and liberate!  Moreover, in this process, more light and more perfection are brought to our physical reality.
  • Chi Kung & Sexuality: In a path of liberation, it is essential that we learn to work with the Chi energy in the body: the levels, the blockages, the free flow. Energy is required to open consciousness, to manage and transform sexual energy, and to ready the heart for the different levels of unity with the cosmos. 
  • The Power of Dreams: Dreaming creates a readjustment of neural connections, and promotes Body-Psyche balance by assimilating the day's experiences and integrating unconscious material. It also provides access to other levels of reality.
  • Grace, Prayer & Meditation: We are neurologically wired for Spirituality (Read: God, Meditation, Prayer, Mystical States, Faith, Compassion, Love).  Karl Jung called the Self our cosmic and divine identity.
  • The Value of Psychotherapy and Unconscious: Neurosis is largely held in the Unconscious, which is to say well below the surface of our awareness. Karmically, it represents, much of what we need to resolve to be able to enjoy an enlightened state.

Carlos de León invites students and friends of Ontogony to enjoy our online holiday celebration hosted on December 21, 2022; to receive the transmission and practice of White Tara, the Mother Who Heals. For the third event in our series and the season’s magical spirit, Carlos offers the practice of "Snowflake Protection Meditation."

Students and friends from around the globe gathered for our "Holiday Celebration and Transmission of White Tara." In a season for expressing gratitude to those we love and appreciate, and for coming together in hopes of bringing more peace and beauty to our world.

At Ontogony, we are as fascinated by transformation, as we are by metaphor. So, in this season of change and enchantment, we take a moment to consider an aspect of snow: perhaps snow’s enduring mystique resides, however unconsciously, in the story of water meeting land, of "Heaven meeting Earth". And, perhaps in this season, the one most likely to include the lovely white flakes gently falling, we get to consider … or remember…  that we are being kissed by the Divine.

Facing 2023 and its uncertainties, our prayer for these holidays—and likely well beyond—is that we find new ways to see the light around us and beauty in the shadows. It is always time to celebrate the wondrous moments with greater awareness and bring a peaceful heart to all that we do and share.

About the Practice:

The White Tara Practices provide special support in facing the sorts of uncertainties that lie ahead on this planet. Arya Tara—the Noble Tara—is a Buddha who, in earlier times, promised to always be born in the pure form of a female body in order to help living beings reach enlightenment. In this online transmission, Carlos shares the practice of "Snowflake Protection Meditation," with an emphasis on pacifying and purifying places, groups, families, communities, and countries. Through group practice, as we dedicate ourselves to helping others in this festive season, may we come closer to the recognition of our True Nature.

We are inspired by our growing community of students, this beautiful collection of unique individuals who share a desire for growth and transformation, are curious about what lies beneath the surface, and are courageous enough to step down new paths. Receive the blessings of Tara, and celebrate the gifts of the past year, which certainly include being on this journey together and with a teacher who, in addition to knowledge and wisdom, has compassion, an open heart, and a sense of humour.

Let’s continue to engage in teachings that bring new levels of compassion, and presence, while reflecting on our individual and collective journeys, our growth over the past year, our plans for 2023, and our intention to contribute to a more peaceful and joyful world!

Carlos de León invites students and friends of Ontogony to enjoy our free online event hosted on November 25, 2022; to receive the transmission and practice of White Tara, the Mother Who Heals. The second event of the series, offers the practice of "Five Elements Healing Meditation," with an emphasis on inviting and balancing the energies of the elements of nature.

Carlos chose this series of meditations as a way we, as a group, could contribute a little light and healing to everyone. It feels important at this time to add our intention and effort toward harmony and balance personally, if not globally.

Let us also come together in gratitude for what we have received through the Teachings of Ontogony, and extend that gift by building more beautiful bridges of friendship and community around the world!

About the Practice:

White Tara, the female Buddha beloved by Tibetan Buddhists, represents the qualities of wisdom and energy, with an emphasis on inviting and balancing the energies of the five elements of nature. She expresses motherly compassion and offers to heal beings who are suffering, whether physically or psychically. Her practices are particularly associated with the healing, protection, and harmonization of our vital energy and help her practitioners live long, healthy lives.

The White Tara Practices provide special support in facing the sorts of uncertainties that lie ahead on this planet. Arya Tara—the Noble Tara—is a Buddha who, in earlier times, promised to always be born in the pure form of a female body in order to help living beings reach enlightenment.

In this transmission, Carlos shares the practice of healing with the Five Elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Akash, to support the rejuvenation of the physical elements within your body and in relation to the environment.

  • HEALING THE EARTH ELEMENT - STRUCTURE: Purify your physical body to increase vitality, strong bones, healthy tissues, and sexual power. 
  • HEALING THE WATER ELEMENT - LIQUIDS: Purify your blood, saliva, lymph, and tears. 
  • HEALING THE FIRE ELEMENT - METABOLISM: Purify your digestion, hormones, and heat regulation.
  • HEALING THE AIR ELEMENT - WIND: Purify your circulation, respiration, elimination, and breathing.
  • HEALING THE AKASH ELEMENT - SPACE: Purify the space between phenomena at all levels of the body and your environment.

Enjoy the fruits of the Five Elements Healing Meditation practice of White Tara. Let's continue to grow spiritually and expand our compassion, gratitude, and presence in the world.

Carlos de León invites the students and friends of Ontogony to enjoy our free online event hosted on October 28th, 2022; to receive the transmission and practice of White Tara, the Mother Who Heals. The first event of the series, offers a devotional practice of Guru Yoga that helps us recognize the innate radiance and compassion of our true nature.

Carlos feels it is important to add our intention and effort toward healing the situation we are experiencing globally, and he chose this series of meditations as a way we, as a group, could contribute a little light and healing to everyone.

In addition to our individual and collective efforts, let's continue to be grateful for all we have received through the Teachings of Ontogony and extend the gift by building beautiful bridges of friendship and community all over the world!

About the Practice:

White Tara expresses motherly compassion and offers to heal beings who are injured or suffering, whether physically or psychically. Her practices are particularly associated with the healing, protection, and harmonization of our vital energy, and her practice helps practitioners live long lives.

The White Tara Practices provide special support in facing the sorts of uncertainties that lie ahead on this planet. Arya Tara—Noble Tara—is a Buddha who, in earlier times, promised to always be born in the pure form of a female body in order to help living beings reach enlightenment.

White Tara is also known as Quan Yin, the bodhisattva of compassion. And Carlos sees a very close relationship between White Tara and Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, whose chapel is in Paris. “She” will open our series with a practice of Guru Yoga, wherein refuge is taken and the repetition of the White Tara mantra is given by direct transmission.

Let's continue to grow spiritually and expand our compassion, gratitude, and presence in the world.
